Well, I sold my Escort 8500 this morning and Im trying to deceide between a V1 or the 9500i. I was VERY happy with my 8500 and it still worked GREAT even after 5 years but I want something with a little bit more range, who am I kidding, I want a new toy to play with! I was set on getting a 9500 but was thinking about giving the V1 a try with the 30 day test. If I deceide to return it after the 30 days does V1 pay for return shipping or do I? Do they refund the original shipping as well? If im going to end up paying for shipping both ways after testing the V1 Ill save myself the shipping charges and just go ahead and get the 9500.
